I probably would not have an intentional vaginal breech birth because if I knew that ds was breech, I would get the Webster technique done. When done properly, it pretty much always works unless there is a physical reason preventing the baby from turning. In which case, I would probalby rather have a c-section. In general, vaginal breech birth is safe if left hands off. There are some additional risks but the risks are still low. Still, my last ds was breech at 38 and 39 weeks. Webster worked and I'm glad. Ds was born with a HUGE head and bizarrely thin body (shoulders, butt, etc). He was (and is) like a bobble head doll, lol. It took a really really long time to not only labor but also push his head out.
